Outerthere Climbs The Gunks for Beginners!

  • Gunks
 

We're climbing the legendary Gunks in NY. We're taking Trailsways Bus to New Paltz from Port Authority and meeting our guide who'll take us the rest of the way.

You know that feeling when you finished that project at work. That crazy complicated, too big too handle project, and you start getting emails from everyone and pats on the back because no one else could have done it. That's pretty much what it feels like to reach the top of a climb. Every time. Except you're sweating more. If you've never climbed or never climbed outdoors; or if you've climbed a few times before, you definitely want to come out on this trip. It's gonna be dope. $130/person (when 4 or more sign up) includes harness, shoes, helmet, and rope. There will some hiking with all your gear before we actually get to a free route, but it'll be worth it. This will be a full day trip with a pit stop at the local brewery to crack open cold ones. Word. Check the clip from our last trip then sign up.

Outerthere Skydives Without Planes!

  • Yonkers, NY
 

We taking Metro North up to Yonkers. You can also drive, there's a parking lot.

I've been skydiving and it was dope. But this is half the price ($99 per person) and a third of the hassle (in getting there and getting up in the air) for a bit more time in the air. Oh and a much less intense waiver. Plus, a great way for anyone too nervous about jumping out of a plane at 13,000 feet. The entire experience from registration to done is about 30 minutes. Check the promo clip from the company who does this and sign up.

We're going legit fly fishing fam!

  • Catskills, NY
 

We're going up to the Catskills. Transportation is TBD.

You probably didn't know this but some of the absolute best fly fishing in the world is up in the Catskills. What's the difference between fly fishing vs. regular fishing? Fly fishing is not about actually catching fish. It's about the challenge of tricking some really smart trout onto your line. It's about the actual flies you use. It's about your casting technique. It's about meditation. I know, it sounds a little country, but some people like yoga and others go fly fishing. Try something new and come fly fishing with us. And since the fish come out in the mornings, we're camping to make sure we do it legit. We're going with professional guides. $400/group.

  • Busua Beach Ghana
 

Teach on the Beach During Asabakoo!

Ghana is the "gateway" to Africa. It's the longest standing Independence. It's got super friendly people. And it's as safe as your average trip to the mall. Teach on the Beach is a non-profit teaching and tutoring underprivileged Ghanaian youths how to read, write, and math. Classes are taught by volunteers on an after school schedule either 3p to 5p or 6p to 8p. You are the volunteer. Asabakoo (translation: One Dance) is Ghanaian Independence Day Festival, March 6th. And like any celebration of independence, it's pretty turnt. The biggest Independence Day party in the region where Teach on the Beach is located (Busua Beach) happens right in front of the Teach on the Beach HQ. On the beach. Word. Why would you want to spend your vacation teaching, though? Because, as much as you'll change the lives of those kids, those kids will change your life, too.

Outerthere Keeps it 100!

  • Harriman State Park Visitor Center
 

We're going to Harriman State Park!

So I'm doing the math, right, and apparently, this is Outerthere's 100th trip (give or take) --jaw dropped-- Where does the time go? (Missed a few trips? Check out #whatyoumissed). So, we gon' celebrate. In honor of this trip, we're doing a hike I've been wanting to do for years, Sloatsburg-to-Suffern, approx 20 miles. Yeah, I know what you thinking, "That's sum bullsh_t, Al". Normally, we break trips like this up into 2 days. But we gangsta and gonna make it happen in a single day. (This is a scouting trip. Check my difficulty ratings).

You can do it, yo. It's summer, days are longer, you've been in the gym all winter and if we start at 10:30a from Sloatsburg, we should be at Suffern by 7pm-ish, assuming no side missions or breaks. We hangin' in Suffern for celebratory dranks after. Word. It's gonna be legit. You know you down, son! If you've ever been out on any of the prior 99 trips, you're considered Outerthere family and if you're in the area, please come out on this trip! We're taking NJ Transit to the park. Hiking point-to-point. Taking train back. Plenty of parking if you want to drive. No charge to go. Word.

Family Day Hike!

  • Tuxedo Park Metro North Train Station
 

We're hiking from Tuxedo to Sloatsburg with an awesome picnic at Sebago Lake!

This hike is just under 10 miles, but before you say your kid can't handle that, yes, your kid can handle it. Once we get to Tuxedo, there's a 10 minute walk to the trailhead. From the trailhead, it's a 20 minute zig-zaggy hike up to the top of Tuxedo Ridge. You'll sweat, but that's the toughest part of the entire day. After that, it's a scrambly hike to Lake Sebago, where we'll stop for about an hour for a nice leisurely lunch. Afterwards, we hike along a flowing creek to the the Harriman State Park Visitors Center at Sloatsburg, with a couple of stops along the way to soak our feet in the creek. The visitor center is a good place to call for a taxi if you're done OR we can continue to walk to the end of the trail at Sloatsburg. At the end point, it's a 15 minute walk back to the train station. Oh and the best part, we'll have an honest-to-goodness "tree doctor", Dr. Chris Borman, Doctor of Plant Health (University of Nebraska) and Senior Forester at Manhattan Forestry at NYC Parks who works to keep NYC trees healthy and happy. He'll be answering most of the nature questions you'll have about the foliage we'll encounter. I asked him to come because why not get your learn on while you hike. Word. It's a complete family day that even you grown ups will like.

The Great Inflatable Race

  • Aviator Sports & Events Center
 

We're going to Brooklyn's Aviator Sports Complex!

A good OCR is just what you need to get your priorities right. But an OCR with inflatable balloons is what you need to make those priorities fun. Word.

Last year, I did a version of this and it was soooo much fun, I'm doing it again this summer. (Shout out to Outerthere friend Eileen Y for recommending both!) Don't let it fool you though. This ain't a race. It's just bouncy goodness. We're doing it together, at a fun pace, so don't feel like you can't go 'cause you'll slow everyone else down. You won't. Even the kids can roll through, if you got 'em. But if you've ever been in a bouncy castle or on a trampoline you know that bouncing around is also a good cardio workout. So, yeah, make exercise great again! Check out the race and register here. Sign up for the 9am run under 'Outerthere' team. (Later time slots are full, which means bottle necks.) And if you're a Groupon member, get your discount here. And after all that, come back here and sign up on the form below to let me know you goin'. Yeah!

4th Annual Beginner Camping Trip!

4th Annual Beginner Camping Trip!

  • Anthony's Nose
 

We're hiking the Appalachian Trail east of the Hudson from Peekskill to Garrison, NY!

Oh snap! This the 4th annual! See the ridiculousness that went down last year and try not to miss this one!

I've never done this before but was curious so it'll be a scouting trip. That said, I already checked the maps and it should be manageable for beginners looking to step things. However, it's not get off the train and boom, trailhead. We gotta work to get to the park, work to get to the campsite, and work to get out of the park on the other side. Approximately 13 miles. But mostly over a level stretch of the Appalachian Trail. But you won't notice it anyway since the entire first half of this trip is overlooking a beautiful Hudson River. Word. It's gonna be dope.

These squeeze packs are dope. I first tried them last Feb (2016) and was like, you know what, they'd be perfect for camping. So, I called them up and they said, you right, Al. So, I'll have some for everyone. Good lookin' out, MunkPack!

Gear sponsored by Traverse Outfitters @trvrse

If you've been to this site before, you know I've been a big supporter of Traverse for a hot minute. Part of it is how much I regret spending soooo much money for my first epic camping trip. (Looking back, I was such a nube). To this day, I barely used most of that gear. Today, gear's so fresh that being a gearhead is like being crackhead except being a crackhead is cheaper. The point is, don't be a crackhead. Rent out the gear first before you buy... with Traverse. Borrowing is great. But nothing beats carrying a backpack fitted to you or sleeping in a clean, light-weight tent. (Friends who let you borrow tents always seem to have the heaviest, most complex-to-assemble tents. They ain't your friends. You need to train like C. T. Fletcher and have a Ph.d to carry and assemble. Word.) Anyway, click here or on the ad above to get to Traverse and get your gear. So yeah, this all means that Traverse is now sponsoring us, too. Word.

From Wikipedia

Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, also known as the "festival of colours" or the "festival of love". The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.

From The Event Organizer's Facebook page

Join a beautiful crowd at Stage48 and get painted in reds, yellows, greens, pinks and enjoy the Festival of colors in style with food, drinks, and the amazing beats by NYC's Top Entertainers.

Welcome to the happiest day party in New York City! The Festival of Colors celebrates the coming of spring, the joy of friendship, and equality for all. This Indian Festival happens ever year, not only in India but throughout the world. This is a day event and all nationalities and ethnicities are encouraged to participate!

Make sure to wear white because this party gets colorful. The colored powders used in Holi represent happiness, love, and the freedom to live vibrantly. Take the opportunity to cover yourself and your friends in colorful powders and dance your heart out. Enjoy musical performances, delicious food, and an afternoon of messy, color fun! Hope you all can make it!

5th Outertheresary Hike!

 

We're going to the old Indian Hill Ruins!

This is actually the real 4th Outertheresary. I got it wrong last year. Oh well. I'm just going to go up numerically from here and leave it to myth and legend to sort it out.

This is a scrambly, but solid hike. Good for beginners and experienced hikers alike. However, if you've got crappy ankles or knees, bring your trekking poles and braces.

Outerthere Family Hike Day! It's fo' da kids, fam!

 

Hudson Highlands State Park Arden Point and Glenclyffe Trails!

Every year I get asked to do a family trip for ya'll chilrens. But this the year we're gonna make it happen with the help of Anna P, Jennifer E, and Ben W! Word. Shout out to ya'll, homies!

Anyway, this is how it's going down. At approximately 11:00am, we're all meeting in the parking lot of Garrison, NY. You can drive there, there's a huge parking lot, or you can roll with me (sign up for details on taking Metro North train with me). From there, we'll all gather up, wrangle the kids, and hike Hudson Highlands State Park to Sugarhill Loaf, a kid-friendly mountain overlooking the Hudson. The entire hike is picturesque, easy for any physical fitness level, and crosses a ton of interesting sites (check the Outerthere Difficulty Ratings here to get an idea of what I mean about easy or Beginner). When we get to the Sugarloaf, we'll stop, eat lunch, and head back to Garrison station. The entire hike should take approximately 3 to 4 hours (not including commuting time), but we'll keep a good pace and wait for everyone so could be more or less. The point of this trip is getting out, not crushing miles or beating fastest times. So, sort out your work schedule, do your errands during the week (Sunday, you may want to just chill), and tell your friends with kids. This is gonna be a dope trip.

Outerthere Rides!

 

Outerthere partners with OvRride, the #1 tour operator to snow resorts on the east coast. On a typical, snowy weekend, OvRride sends 20 to 30 buses up to the mountains, and Outerthere is an official trip leader on one of those buses.

I LOVE DAY TRIPS! They're way more affordable than a weekend trip because OvRride gets that crazy group rate, leaving you more money for drinks and a free day to rest at home. Just get on the bus and chill. A typical day trip consists of:

  • A mad early morning (starting at 3am and every hour thereafter until 9am) pickup at a convenient location in your borough
  • A 3- to 5-hour bus trip to the mountain (depending on where it is) where you can nap off the previous night's alcohol poisoning, and when you wake up, I will personally serve you water and freshly baked breakfast bagels with creamcheese (Whaaaa?!)
  • Then when we get to the mountain, I give you your lift, rental, and lesson tickets, you get your gear and ride and ski all day. Need a break? There are dope bars and you will find me at it around 2p, killing some chilli or ridiculous, maple-syrup glazed grill cheese with a cold beer
  • And finally, around 4p, you load back up on the bus for the trip back down to your drop off spot(sorry, homies, apres happens on the bus, with cold beers and cheesy movies. But it's still dope).

Purchase your lift tickets, bus ride, rentals, and lessons.

No snow gear? No problem! All the mountains provide basic snowboard and ski rentals, bindings, and poles. Some also provide helmets (helmets are important. Don't f_ck around and get a concussion, yo). None rent visors, so you may want to purchase on your own (not recommended if you stick to the bunny slopes, and yo, ain't no shame in riding bunny slopes if you're a beginner). You can also rent your gear for the season, if you know you'll be going up alot. And when you're ready to buy, there are major gear sales at the start and end of the season.

You can easily spend a fortune to get all the right gear for this kind of trip. (Curious what kind of gear you need? Check out the Outerthere gear list for this time of year.) However, that's not recommended for a one-off trip like this. If you don't have any friends you can borrow from (or a trust fund that won't even feel this kind of spending), then check out Outerthere homies Traverse Outfitters, the largest outdoor rental guys in NYC. Ask for Avi and tell 'em Al sentcha. He'll hook you up with whatever you're missing and you can save that money for beers, your dealer, or diapers, whatever your priorities, yo.

Mappy Hour NYC Holiday Party

  • 333 Douglass Street Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States

Outerthere is gonna party like a rockstar! Word. During the season, I'm going to post casual invites to everything from happy hours, tastings, and other social events I get invited to. Mostly it's because not everyone wants to go hard in the woods on Saturdays, but they still want to stay connected to Outerthere. So, to kick off this new situation, I'm inviting you to my homegirl's Sarah Knapp's Mappy Hour! Mappy Hour is dope. There's beers, hosted in some kinda community spot for outdoorsy people (think REI, but there's actually a ton of spots in town and Sarah finds them all) and plenty of guests speakers and awesome peeps to meet. I've been to a few and think they're awesome, and you will, too! So, peep the invite and I'll see you there! Word.

PS Check out my profile on the Mappy Hour site. Yeah man. Get yours, too!

It’s the peak of fall colors and instead of heading to overpriced revelries in any of the dozen beer gardens through the big city, or driving upstate to drink with “conservative Republicans”, bring your favorite German beer and sausage and we’ll do it like German’s used to do it - sharing our beers, not charging for them - back before it got all commercialized!  Word.  (If you’re actually going to Germany for Ocktoberfest, you’re excused.  Also, I don’t really know if Germans shared their beer back in the day.)  And from what previous campers have told me, "Your first sausage at Al's camping trip is the best sausage you've ever had!" Seriously.

Some important notes about this trip: This is a strenuous, backpacking trip because of all the food and drinks we'll be carrying, in addition to our tents, sleeping bags, and other gear, across really challenging terrain and weather, so avoid overpacking (see my recommended packing list).  Pro Tip: To keep your pack weight even lower, wear layers (preferably merino wool) and expect to be in the same clothes the whole weekend, including sleeping. If you need some packing advice, gear, or anything else you're not sure of, contact me.

Additionally, Be prepared to help “set up camp”. What does this mean?  Our campsite is raw land: no structures, no showers, and it’ll get below freezing overnight.  So, we’ll be collecting firewood, prepping food on rocks, and working to light our fire.  (If you don’t know how to do any of these things, you're going to learn.) There are also no bathrooms, no port-a-potties, and no showers, and if this ain’t your thing, you may not have a good time. Then again, you’ll be warm and tipsy before you notice, so it might be the best camping adventure you’ve ever had! 

If you’ve car camped, camped at lodges, or RV’d before, and want to step up your camping game (especially if you're thinking about an epic thruhike somewhere) this is a great trip to transition into doing some real camping a.k.a. backpacking.  And there will be beer! Sign up below to find out where we'll be meeting and what to bring.

Finally, as a reminder, I'm planning a Sunday Funday visit to a whiskey distillery on Sunday, October 23rd, to stock up on supplies before the trip. You should go.

You can easily spend over $1,000 to get all the right gear for this trip. (Curious what kind of gear you need? Check out the Outerthere gear list for this time of year.) However, that's not recommended for an overnight trip. If you don't have any friends you can borrow from (or a trust fund that won't even feel this kind of spending), then check out Outerthere homies Traverse Outfitters, the largest outdoor rental guys in NYC. Ask for Avi and tell 'em Al sentcha. He'll hook you up with whatever you're missing and you can save that money for beers, your dealer, or diapers, whatever your priorities, yo.

Scouting Hike Abram S. Hewitt State Forest

  • West Milford, NJ

In case you missed it, this year, we're trying out Jersey hikes. I've never been to this park, but according to the map I just got, it's supposed to be "one of the most picturesque mountain ridges in all of New Jersey". Let's see. I figured out how to get here using public transit, so I'm doing it. This is a scouting trip so no promises. But I'm sure we'll have an awesome time! Sign up below to find out where we meet and what to bring.

Outerthere Runs Rugged Maniac!

  • Calverton, NY

WTF?! Another fkn mud race? Seriously!? Yes, seriously. Although it's not as fluffy as the Ridiculous Race last weekend, it's the same distance - 3 short miles - with a lot more obstacle goodness (they claim 20+). Yeah man! Despite that, it is easier than a Tough Mudder, so you can totally give it a shot instead of living vicariously. So stop wondering, sign up, and come out. Registration details will be posted here this Friday, Sept 16. But in the meantime, RSVP below to let me know you're coming and we'll roll as part of the Outerthere squad. Word.

Outerthere Runs Ridiculous Obstacle Course

Outerthere Runs Ridiculous Obstacle Course

  • 3159 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11234 United States

Upon noting that I tend to describe things as "ridiculous" a little too regularly, Outerthere friend E.Y. put me on to this. (Thanks EY!) I took a look and boom! it's exactly the sort of thing I'm down to do. And I want to do it with you fam!

So, here's what you should do (a little ridiculous, I know, but then again, this is the Ridiculous Race):

  1.  Head on over to LivingSocial.com and search for ROC race in Brooklyn. They've got a $59 voucher, less than the $68 you get charged if you buy direct. It expires today, Friday, Sept 9th, 2016, so hurry up and get it, yo!
  2. After you've booked your voucher (only 11:30am wave left), they'll give you a link and instructions on how to redeem your voucher on the rocrace.com website.
  3. The ROC website wave times are incorrect. It's either before noon or after noon, yet you just bought a voucher for 11:30am wave. So, select wave 2 on the ROC site and your voucher will automatically be accepted on the purchase page.
  4. When filling out your information, register as part of the "OUTERTHERE FAM" team. And remember, don't select the "tech tee" in order to get your voucher redeemed.
  5. ROC will charge you $5 to pick up your "package" day of and another $10 for like a stadium clean up fee, so will be charged $16.50.
  6. Your final total of $59 + 16.50 is $75.50, which is a major discount to the $92 ROC will charge you if you just go through the site.
  7. At the final screen, you'll be presented with an offer from Active Media to sign up to some auto-renewing membership. It looks like part of your purchase, but it's not. Just scroll down and click, No Thanks, and your final Transaction Complete page will appear.
  8. When you're done with all that, come back here and let me know if you're going by signing up below. Meet up details will be sent to you via email as late as 10p tonight, Friday, Sept 9, 2016.

Outerthere Kayaks The Hudson!

  • Cold spring, NY
TRIP DESCRIPTION

Sit down son, 'cause you're 'bout to get schooled. ~~~You live in NY and enjoy all it has to offer. Except probably the Hudson River. The "river that flows two ways" isn't just Manhattan's river, it's NY's river, stretching 315 miles from the Adirondacks all the way down to the Atlantic. And despite how badly NY'ers have screwed it up over the centuries, we're also spending billions of dollars to clean it back up, spurring the creation of non-profits with names like Riverkeepers, Clearwaters, and Scenics who monitor everything that goes into it. Thanks to them, corporations, and other community groups, working collaborative with local, state and federal governments have been working since the 90s to continue to keep it clean so we can enjoy it by sailing, fishing, diving, and yes, paddling it. You can pretty much paddle anywhere on the Hudson. But if you don't own your own gear, or don't know the rules of the river, (or how to paddle... or swim...) it's best to go with an experienced guide/instructor. So, that said, for our second ever kayaking adventure on the Hudson, we're going back out with our partners Hudson River Expeditions, located at Cold Spring, NY. Around this time of the year, the tides are ideal for a tour on long boats to a protected marshes where we'll get up close and personal with a waterfall or to explore the deepest points of the Hudson. Word. You down, homie? Reserve your spot below then RSVP here so we know who's going. 

  1. Please visit: https://a.zozi.com/#/express/1458170950289/products/149419
  2. Select Quantity 1
  3. Find Aug 20th and Outerthere Private Tour will come up
  4. Your total of $110 will come up (unless you're buying for more than one adult). All money is collected by the kayaking service, Hudson Expeditions. Zozi is the shopping cart service they use.
DON'T FORGET

This trip is beginner friendly and instruction and gear will be provided. Here's what to pack for this time of the year.  Hashtag your Instagram and Facebook pics with #outerthere so all your homies can get jealous or inspired and come out, too! And don't forget to check the twitter @Outerthere for updates!

Outerthere Sails the Hudson!

TRIP DESCRIPTION

Sailing is awesome. Duh. Wind in your hair (or scalp, in my case). Sun in your face. And plenty of filthy sailor humor and drinking afterwards. Word. If you've never sailed, this will be a great opportunity to get your proverbial feet wet. If you have, this will be a refresher or a chance to teach the rest of us how to sail like a boss.

We'll be going with Sailors NYC, a private charter company owned by Outerthere friend, Capt. Nicky Levy. She's super chill and sails for the same reason we do awesome shit, she loves it. Follow these steps to RSVP:

  1. Please visit: http://www.sailorsnyc.com/booking
  2. Find Aug 13th 11:30am lesson with Nitzan Levy.
  3. And when you sign up, use promo code OUTERTHERE to get 50% off the class price. So instead of paying $152, we only pay $76. Word.
WHERE WE MEET

Also for this trip, we have to meet up at B Dock in Liberty Harbor Marina, 11 Marin Blvd. Jersey City, NJ 07302. It is only two stops with the PATH train from the WTC station and a 10 min walk from the PATH to the marina. Consult google maps for accurate instructions.

DON'T FORGET

Here's what to pack for this time of the year.  And as always hashtag your Instagram and Facebook pics with #outerthere so all your homies can get jealous or inspired and come out, too! And don't forget to check the twitter @Outerthere for updates!

Outerthere Surfs the Rock!
Aug

10:00 am10:00

Outerthere Surfs the Rock!

  • Beach 67th Street Far Rockaway, NY, 11692 United States
TRIP DESCRIPTION

Unlike our other trips, surfing is the least predictable type of adventure we can plan. Sometimes, the weather is overcast. Other times, the tide just doesn't want to cooperate and there are no swells. And other times, the water's just sketchy. Oh, and that Rockaway Beach boardwalk is still under construction from Hurricane Sandy. But, it's our local surf beach and we're going for the day. Bring your towels, flip flops, and plenty of sun screen, because if the surf's up, we're surfing (and here's a handy beach cam and surf report by Surfline that we'll be checking that weekend) That said, this time of the year, east coast swells can reach reach 4 or 5 feet and the water is just starting to get warm enough that you don't need a wet suit. Board rental is approximately $50 for the day from whichever surf shop is renting on the beach.

WHERE WE MEET

We’ll be meeting on the plaza at Beach 67th Street on the side that faces the beach at 10am. It's about 60 to 90 minutes from anywhere on any of the other boroughs, so plan accordingly. We'll be on the beach until it gets boring, so if you're running late, don't worry, just call. Afterwards, we're headed inland for one of the awesomest Thai food spots in NYC! Yeah!

It's a beach. You'll be on the sand and in the water. You know what to pack. I'm bringing a cooler with "supplies". I suggest you do the same. To learn where we're meeting and how we're getting there, reserve your spot below.

DON'T FORGET!

Hashtag your Instagram and Facebook pics with #outerthere so all your homies can get jealous or inspired and come out, too! And don't forget to check the twitter @Outerthere for updates!
